Portraits – family & children


Childhood flies by in a haze of intense and contrasting emotions and discovery, a yearning for adulthood (in my case at least!), and for those of us who are really lucky, lots of love. It is fleeting, and yet so important.

Family  bonds are like no other and form the soil on which life grows.


My photos of children and family are understated, intimate and authentic. I use a combination of naturalistic, reportage photography and posed portraits to create a set of photos which communicate the emotion and intensity of family life. I work to capture the connection and friendship between individuals, and the simple, intense beauty of the little ones.

 “We were all absolutely delighted with the shots – Mim managed to capture lots of natural moments of warmth and humour between the four of us, made everyone feel at ease…”

As with all my sessions, I work on location – for families, this can be at home, at a favourite park or local beauty spot, or a combination to suit. The most important thing is that everyone is warm enough and stimulated – the rest is up to me. As well as images of everyone together, I take portraits of smaller groups and individuals, and document the details and surroundings.

“Hiring a photographer is a big expense, but Mim was a great investment. Mim had a relaxed demeanour that put everyone at ease. The resulting photographs captured both the beauty of the surrounding environment and our family. I highly recommend Mim. She does an exceptional job of documenting the details. The details that create memories.”

Most parents are, but you don’t need to be. I’m a mum myself and I know the tricks to get good shots. I have experience of working with all sorts of families and little (and big ones) from all age groups, including toddlers, teens and children with autism.

“[We] were concerned that our son might not “be in the mood” so portraits might be a waste of time. After some research we found Mim’s site. We wanted some natural shots outdoors, with natural light, so it seemed like a good fit. Not only did we have a fun day out, at a beautiful local garden with Mim, but the photos turned out amazing…”

I never fail to get beautiful shots and my sessions are fun and relaxed. I tap into what you are looking for from your images, and we go from there, working with whatever energies your family members bring along on the day.

“…we wanted the shoot to be summery, warm, a bit lazy and mellow and Mim caught on with what we were going for straight away. With another baby on the way, we’re looking forward to taking another shoot with Mim, and would wholeheartedly recommend her to everyone.”

To book your session now, contact me. Lets make some photos to treasure.

“We used them for Christmas gifts, and on our Christmas card, and have some on our wall.  It was amazing value and I know we will look back on the photos, well, forever probably! We will definitely get back in touch with Mim and do it again soon.”
